Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

the government's promise to spend £28bn on the UK's road infrastructure between 2015 and 2020. Here is just a selection: Road tax payers deserve more WE WELCOME the chancellor's clear message that capital investment in roads and other transport infrastructure needs to be a priority.

Nine out of 10 passenger miles are travelled on UK roads, as do the majority of freight movements. Britain urgently requires major investment in its roads and road maintenance and we would urge the government to look at a fairer distribution of the £47bn raised in motoring taxes each year.

Taxpaying road users deserve more for their money.

Gerry Keaney Chief executive, BVRLA There are better priorities...

INVESTMENT IN infrastructure is key to stimulating the UK's economy, but the government is mistaken if it thinks large-scale investment in new roads is anything but a drain on the taxpayer.

Investing in infrastructure that prioritises walking, cycling and public transport and takes the two-thirds of journeys that cover less than five miles off our roads would transform local economies and increase people's travel choices.

By providing people with healthy and affordable transport options the government would dramatically ease congestion, improve our health and save the economy billions.
